Sunday dinner club…

I’ve always wanted to have a dinner club….

i’ve read about them……

i’ve heard friends talk about them….

but i’ve never hosted one nor have i ever been to one.

All that changed tonight.

apparently…the deal is…

one couple hosts an evening….

with the hosting couple doing everything….

from wine to dinner…to dessert.

I suppose you could have your children there…but in my case…

i guess i just needed a break…

you see..Mason has been home most of the week with Chicken pox.

{yes…he was vaccinated}

Did you know that kids need 2 vaccines? …..

uggh.

well….the doctor never double checked his records….so here we were on Tuesday…and Mason came in

from playing outside…complaining that he was itchy.

grrr.

so i told him……well….that’s what you get for rolling around in those worm infested leaves.

Holy crepes { i totally could have said something else..}……..

he took his shirt off and blisters all over his torso….

and of course….me being a *retired nurse* and all…just had to look at those puppies

to determine that indeed….it was

chicken pox.

where was i????

oh yes….

dinner club..

I needed a little bitty break from the kid….

so i got my sitter to take the kids to Chucky {vomit} cheese.

The original plan was for me to spend the day cooking a lovely meal for the 5 couples i invited over for dinner….
but as luck would have it….
my cleaners canceled on friday….which meant i had to spend the morning cleaning…
thus….
no time for cooking.
don’t get me wrong…..dinner was still fabulous.
we dined on eggplant Parmesan….fresh field greens with Gorgonzola ….linguine with pesto and pine nuts…
and finished dinner off with some fabulous french petite desserts.
I just want to say a big thank you to Maggiano’s for totally taking my call at last minute and pulling the order together for me.
eeek.
Back to the idea of Sunday evening dinner club…….
one sunday a month…a couple hosts it…and does everything….
then it switches to another couple the next month.
We get a night out….only paying for a sitter….and have a fabulous time mingling with friends.

That my friends is what a Sunday evening dinner club is all about.

* oh yes…the retired nurse statement. I indeed used to work in pediatrics…and have not in about 7 years. I was the one in the office that gave your children their vaccines….and froze their warts off…and started their i.v.’s…

yup….that was me…

and i totally remember you moms giving me the evil eye as i did these things…

oh yes i do….
